only concern is defense as usual due to lack of bigs. But if O'Bryant can really keep doing what he's doing in altering shots, the w's won't have to worry when Biedrins takes a breather. IMO Bukie is an upgrade over JR on defense. I agree about the O'Bryant thing. It'd be great if we could give Bie...

How wierd would that be to have Azubuike as a starter? :shock: not weird at all.... :D i expected it ^_^ I remember when the Warriors drafted Belinelli I knew a trade was coming. When it turned out to be JR, I remember thinking..."Azubuike will benefit from this." I thought at the time he...

Oh...I have a prediction: Azubuike will at least be a candidate for Most Improved this season. You heard it here first. psh :roll: "Psh" and little emoticon rolling his eyes? You think I'm nuts? I'm not. He's going to be a solid contributor. And last year he was called up from D-league. S...

I like the enthusiasm, but its only preseason chief. There's still alot of questions to be answered---which we won't know the answers to after 2 preseason games. That's very true. But most of these players have already shown something in previous seasons. It's not just preseason wishful thinking. A...

Is there another team in the league as deep as ours? Not even close from what I've seen. Guys who are going to get minutes: BD Jax Biedrins Harrington Monta Azubuike Barnes Belinelli Pietrus Hudson Croshere That's eleven guys already and I haven't even mentioned this camp's pleasant surprise: a more...

Isn't it interesting how Baron completely changed his tune as soon his "give me a deal or I'm taking a walk" ultimatum deadline came and went. I knew it was just big talk. And I still think that at least part of the reason for it was to deter the club from pursuing AK. One thing that I now...

Baron is not around a full season so is not worth anywhere near 20 million a season! I have a feeling the team will be trading him before the deadline In order for that to make sense, there would have to be somebody on the other side of such a trade--someone who would be willing to extend Baron's c...

Also, are we assuming that the duration of the new contract starts now? Or is it being extended after next year? That's something I can answer. It's an extension (at least, he's seeking an extension), which means it starts once the old contract ends (of course, Baron wouldn't have that chance to op...

But just a 4 year deal?, with a 5th contingent on how much he plays?. I doubt he'll accept, unless he gets a good raise in his salary. Just my two cents, tho. Oh, he'll get a raise. Those four years will probably be worth $80M unless I'm very much mistaken (which is always possible). And the fifth ...

BD wants to stay here and after seeing how Warriors management treated J-Rich (the "heart, soul, and non-tradable guy of the Warriors," as said by management. Isn’t that some bull sh-t) Any time a team says a player is "non-tradable", it means nothing. Nothing at all. Any team. ...

My Thoughts on BD demanding an extension... The reason why Baron's demanding this extension is because of the Jason Richardson trade. You can say I'm going out on a limb, but I think it’s the foundation of his reasoning. After reading that article about BD wanting an extension you can tell he was u...

If he performs well (as most expect), I see Monta as becoming the go to guy more than anyone else but Baron will always be top two I love Monta and I expect him to do well but, realistically, I think he's got some work to do before he can become anybody's go to guy. A "go-to-guy" is a guy...

You really think any team out there is gonna give Baron 17 mil a year? I can't say for sure, but I think so. As an unrestricted free agent, I feel pretty sure he'd get at least that much from some team that would be willing to pay luxury tax for a killer like BD (Houston comes to mind--they'd be in...

hey buddy, he's not fat anymore. he's under 213 ibs this year.


I know. But that's no guarantee that he'll stay that way over the duration of his contract extension. This is just an idea of how to protect the team while also giving the player what he deserves. I think it works nicely.
